You can see how properties that have been advertised were let by checking the recent lets section of this site. You will be able to see what Band the successful bidder was in and how long they had been on the housing register.
This information will give you a better idea of how popular a property or area is and how long you would normally have to wait. You can then use this information to decide whether to look for properties in other areas where you may not have to wait as long.
It is not possible for us to contact every bidder if their bids have been unsuccessful due to the high numbers of bids we receive every week. You can use the My Bids area of your account to check this on a weekly basis.
